This is a performance MK8 All Metal Hotend Upgrade. It includes a coated nozzle and coated thermal barrier tube. They are plated with a very low friction plating called TwinClad XT. TwinClad XT is a nickel composite coating designed to be very hard, corrosion resistant, and have good release properties against plastic. It offers one of the lowest coefficient of friction, better than nickel with PTFE co-deposit. The hardness makes this coating abrasion resistant. If you are working with abrasive Carbon Fiber, Stainless Steel, wood filled or any other metal filled filaments, this will greatly improve the life of your nozzle. Low friction will also prevent clogs in thermal barrier tube, a critical zone where plastic liquidizes.

    Orifice size available: .2mm, .3mm, .4mm, .6mm, .8mm

    Amazing hotend!

    I didn't know this kind of hotend exist! I'm so happy someone at reprap channel in IRC told me about it. This is extremely high quality! It's worth the money I spent!

    Just upgraded to this on my 1600hrs Replicator 2 - wow!

    After doing a week of tuning I was dissatisfied with the state of my original nozzle and decided to overhaul the extruder, primarily to replace the thermal barrier tube and nozzle with a MicroSwiss set. Immediately the first prints were notably cleaner extrusion with the same settings. The first layer was gorgeous, and it continued through the first print. I'm just printing all my calibration tests now to compare and the finish is awesome!

    Great product and service

    I will say that I have never had such great service from anyone as I have received from Micro Swiss. They are fantastic. The product is will made and works great. What I am most impressed with is the service. The people at Micro Swiss have answered my numerous questions with in an hour of each inquiry. They helped me find the nozzle for my printer, and then when I received my new nozzle and I broke it, they promptly sent me a replacement, which I received within 2 days. The people at Micro Swiss even went as far as researching my specific printer to help me solve issues that I was having with their nozzle. You just don't get this kind of service from companies these days. I highly recommend Micro Swiss to any one who is looking for an all metal hotend.
